This 100% Sauvignon Blanc Pouilly-Fumé "Domaine des Fines Caillottes" is a blend of wines coming from different terroirs and micro-climates among the best terroirs of Pouilly-Fumé.
The harvest is destemmed and delicately transported by conveyor in pneumatic presses to be gently pressed (after partial skin maceration) in order to extract the fruit as best as possible.
After a very clear sedimentation (for a lot of finesse), thermoregulated fermentation takes place (16 - 20°C) with wild yeast naturally found on the grapes in stainless steel tanks (as neutral as possible to let the terroir speak).
The maturing on fine lees and the stirring of lees lasts several months. Finally the blend of different terroirs adds compexity to the final wine.
Tasting notes: Pale gold with brilliant highlights. Intense nose with notes of citrus and white fruits (peach...)
Complex, rich and saline palate with good balance showing aromas of ripe fruits (pineapple, citrus fruits, peach...). An intense and aromatic Pouilly Fumé.
